How to solve “This webpage has a redirect loop” error in Google Chrome

Today I faced a problem with Google Chrome (5.0.375.70). When I try to login Gmail, I got the error of This webpage has a redirect loop error instead of GMail Login or Inbox. It also suggested to clear the Clearing your cookies for this site or allowing third-party cookies may fix the problem.

So I thought of documenting this to help Computer noobs to get an idea of how to get it done. This is basically how to clear the cookies of a particular site.

Here is my error message screenshot.

How to clear the cookies to solve this issue. You can either clear all cookies in your browser or cookies for the web site which you face problem. Here I am clearing cookies for my web site www.google.com, to get my GMail working fine.

Step – 1: Go to Google Chrome Tool menu (Spanner icon in top right corner) -> Options -> Under the Hood -> Content Settings… -> Cookies -> Show cookies and other site data…

Step – 2:┬áNow you should get a window listing all domains which have stored cookies in your browser. Enter your web site which reports error in Search text box; on the fly your web pages will be filtered. In my case it is google.com. Now select Remove All button; which should clear all cookies for these web pages. The below screenshot shows this.

Step – 3: Now again go to your web site which reported error, you should get it done this time :-)

    Hi, I know this post was old so You probably won’t even see this but I gotta ask anyway. What happens if you get this error on 3 diff browsers and 3 diff computers? This must be our wireless service, no? I am completely at a loss. I can’t do mundane, ordinary things like pay for things like postage on the USPS site from my cart and when I click to pay for some things on some sites carts it redirects endlessly until I get the error and it shuts off. Help!

      Getting this same issue on a website I developed using WordPress and WooCommerce. Seems it’s not a problem with my computer, I’m getting the error on different computers, and different browsers.

    It’s happen when you change main url from non-www to www. Redirect loop’s on every browsers, so clear cookie doesn’t help.

    Hello! I know this is sort of off-topic but I had to ask.
    Does managing a well-established website such as yours take a large
    amount of work? I am completely new to running a blog but I do write in my journal
    daily. I’d like to start a blog so I can easily share my experience and thoughts online.
    Please let me know if you have any kind of suggestions or tips for
    new aspiring bloggers. Appreciate it!

      Didyou get yours to work? I have been having this problem repeatedly for weeks! Not only in Chrome, but Firefox as well. Sometimes, I use a software called Ccleaner which is really god for cleaning all your browsers thoroughly and it will work, but today it is not working for me!

    Thanks for the post. My problem seems to be in the htaccess file. Only happening on my mobile. Adding a 301 redirect to the htaccess file is what I’m told will work. On my list of todo’s.
